“I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee…” Luke 15: 18

When the prodigal son came back to himself, he recognized his fathers goodness and blessings. He took personal responsibility for his predicament. In the verse above, he also recognized it was his responsibility to act on his decision so as to really get back.

He knew very well that if he had to get back to the father’s presence, he had to act. He didn’t reason like ” why doesn’t my father or older brother come for me and get me out of this? “

The ultimate responsibility to decide and to act rests squarely on you. The father didn’t approve his son leaving his presence and wasting his inheritance but didn’t stop him from leaving.

Likewise the father didn’t go and force his son back though he longed for him and had his eyes always at the gate just suppose he was coming back.

Again, free will is a gift given only to mankind, but it is a gift so absolute that God Himself will never take it back. He will rule and He will have the last word, but He will never make your choice for you. You will choose. And it is you who will act on your choice.

And after your choice, it is you to act to make the choice materialize. Making a choice and acting on the choice is your responsibility. Your right actions makes your right choices alive and permits the father to reciprocate and act further on your good choices.

There is a whole difference between a lost sheep who wandered away from the Father’s presence and got lost unintentionally and a prodigal son who decided to leave home. A lost sheep that wandered from home will be searched for by the shepherd but the prodigal son who had decided to leave his father’s presence will have to come back to his senses and make a decision to go back home.

Not a wish, not just a desire but a decision backed by an action to get back to the Father’s presence will really get him back.

So what are you doing to get back to the Father or to always remain in the Father’s presence?

Blessed WEEK!


  1. Such a good post. The prodigal son chose to leave so he had to make that decision to come back. He had to act on it to get back to the fathers presence.
    The fathers presence is always accessible for us too but it is up to us to be able to experience it.
    This really made me think Cynthia.
    Blessings to you dear sis for this wonderful word.
